Nicest park we have stayed in. Easy in and easy out, close to highway. Very friendly and helpful staff. Excellent fenced in dog park. Concrete pads and patio with picnic table. First time we stayed at a site that was a buddy site (patio to patio), but it was fine. Sites could be a little bigger but they are so well landscaped and taken care. That makes up for the size. We were in a pull thru, other sites are a little roomier. Highly recommend. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

If you are looking for peace and quiet and space to stretch out, this is NOT the place for you! If you are looking for a place to stay overnight, this park will do. We'll start with the positives aspects of this RV park. +The front office staff was friendly. +The park was clean and well-maintained. +All trash was picked up by staff on golf carts. +The grounds support staff delivered/picked-up an air compressor that I needed for a tire issue. +The grounds support staff escorted us to our site and assisted in parking. +There is a casino and gas station directly across the freeway. +The weekly rate was very reasonable. For our needs and desires, the negatives far outweighed the positives. -The overwhelming majority of sites at this park are very, very close together and fit together like puzzle pieces! For example, the tow vehicle/parking spot for the site behind us was directly parallel to the rear of our trailer. -Our site only allowed for space enough for our trailer and truck; there was no place for our chairs, tables, etc. other than in front of the trailer near the road or the three feet of space between the trailer and our truck! -The WiFi was completely unusable! All of the long-term folks shared the same story and all of them relied on their own mobile hot spots. -There were no tables or space to relax on our site. -No fire pits and/or open fires. -When we opened our shades, it was like we were at an RV dealership! All we saw, within feet of our trailer, were our neighbors' RV's! -The freeway noise was intolerable! We ended up leaving two days early because it was impossible to sleep and/or relax! -As there were many long term tenants, one of them had their coaches power-washed starting at 8:00 A.M.! In conclusion, we only recommend this park for an overnight stay. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very clean, manicured, well run park. Easy on/off highway and plenty of room at registration. Excellent pool, dog park, laundry and club room. Small but nice store area and all, the employees were friendly and helpful. Utilities are well laid out and in great condition. Wide open sky for satellite and decent cable tv. The website and map does not indicate that some sites are pull-in, some are back-in and all the pull-through sites are 'buddy sites' (patios facing each other) Some are 'premium', with more of a view. These things should be indicated on the map! We stayed in a pull-through, and although it was long enough for our 36' motorhome and towed vehicle, our slide outs were 22" from the motorhome next door! This is the closest we've ever camped next to another motorhome. Nice, convenient shuttle to Cliff Castle Casino next door (which is a very nice place, btw) Wifi was awful (no excuse for this these days) and Verizon cell service was horrible. Might stay here again, but only in a pull-in site which has nice views and actual elbow room. Both the Shell and Chevron stations at the intersection of I-17 and 260 have some motorhome/RV access. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Sedona Pink Jeep tours are fun! One of the best and most relaxing train rides is at the Verde Valley Railway (splurge for first class!) in Clarkdale. Johnny Rockets and Storytellers restaurant in the casino. Bascha's grocery in town carries everything (and has a Wells Fargo) Do not miss Montezuma's Castle and Montezuma Well!

This a very nice park owned and operated by the Navajo Nation. Our site was a head-in, which means we had to back out to leave. It was a lot easier than it sounds! No problem at all. Our tow vehicle easily parked beside us. Utilities were good. Trash is picked up at your site. They give you $10 play money for the casino and there is a free shuttle. We would stay here again.

Although this park can hold lots of people, the sites are designed so that you have a small patio, a place to park, a little tree and something to look at other than your neighbor. It's a very attractive park. There is a great dog run with shade. Also a nice pool. The people who work there are awesome. One thing that was a problem was that Verizon didn't work so well - sometimes not at all. But the lovely ladies at the desk were great in finding places where I could get reception in their building. This is a central place to stay and you can explore all around you. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

A great park. Escort to site and help backing in. Wifi good at times. Roads easy to get around. No noise from highway. All the other guests where quiet. Casino $10 was fun. Concrete pad large and only needed 1 level on the side. Room for car on the side. Pick up garbage at the front of site. Would come back if ever in the area again.

This is a nice park with one major exception. Power was poor when we were there, enough that my EMS shut my AC down (voltage dropped to under 104VAC). That should not happen in a new park like this, and it wasn't just me. It is a well laid out park, showing someone designed this to maximize use of space. Interior roads are paved, but a bit narrow. Sites were concrete, just large enough for a big rig, but mine and most others were a bit off level. Enough that I needed to add boards to get level. Hot tub was great. A nice park, but I would not stay here again due to power issues. Our rate was a group rate, we had a rally here. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed a week while vacationing in the area. Friendly and efficient staff at checkin. Clean, well-organized facility. Escorted to site. We had a pull through. It was plenty long enough for out 40' 5th wheel and Ram dually TV. Pull-throughs are 'buddy sites'. That is, your entry door faces the neighbor's entry door (separate patios). It worked for us because we had great neighbors. If you had bad or annoying neighbors, not so much. Back-ins had patio and separate parking pad. All roads are paved and all sites are concrete with patio. Utilities are clean and well-maintained. Great dog park. Close to casino with free shuttle. The park is actually owned by the tribe. Close to freeway, but we didn't hear much noise. Excellent central location for area sights including Sedona, Cottonwood, Jerome, Payson, etc. Enjoyed our stay and will definitely return.

There are some really exceptional features in this park; large, level concrete sites with meticulously maintained gravel between spaces with some ground cover and small trees/shrubs. The free shuttle to the casino was very convenient. This campground is owned and operated by Native Americans and service was great. Unfortunately, there were a few bad points, also. The sites, although long, were extremely narrow. Our slides were literally inches from the neighbor's. The wi-fi was terrible - slow and weak. The cable was unwatchable, only a few channels and they were snowy and impossible to see. There was no antenna reception at all. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a tough campground to rate fairly. The service is excellent along with how they keep up with cleanliness of it. Most pads are level and cement. Dog park is OK. This is a resort in every way. Pool, bathrooms, showers, and the grounds all kept in immaculate condition! Sounds great doesn't it? Now the bad. Road noise from I-17 never stops. Its goes on all day and night. There's a ridiculous high intensity lighted bill board that lights up almost the whole campground at night. Wi/Fi is a joke and shouldn't even be advertise as having it! Truly the worst cable Tv we have ever experienced at a resort type of campground. Verizon signal barely works. Wish I could give it a higher mark as the people were very nice here as we stayed for a month waiting for our new home in the area. It is what it is and even if they update the wi/fi and cable, the road noise and that billboard would prevent me from giving them anything higher then a 8. We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Distant Drums is a newer park across the interstate highway from the Cliff Castle Casino with a great restaurant (Storytellers - we really enjoyed the food and ambiance) The sites are cement with paved streets and they provide an escort to your site. We had a pull-In site which was really easy to get in and out. We took advantage of the exercise room and showers and both were spotless, so was the laundry room. The staff was very accommodating. There was a pool but we never used that. Fairly good selection on television. We were very happy with our stay and have been coming here for 4 years now - always have chosen this RV resort for its cleanliness and easy access on and off of the highway. Our dog also loves to go to the large gated pet area and for walks around the trails in front of our site. Highly recommend! We camped at Distant Drums RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The Old Town Camp Verde offered restaurants and shopping also a GREAT Ace Hardware...just minutes from the park. Not too far from Cottonwood and Old Town Cottonwood is a fun place to visit while you are here. A great spot to see many attractions and Sedona is really close!

Beautifully maintained park. Everything is clean. All sites are in full sun. None of them are level. All have concrete pads and patios. Wifi did not work in site #3. Small pool. Shuttle bus to casino. Near Camp Verde town center, with more casinos and restaurants. Passport America was good for one night, I think because we were there on the fourth of July.
